Lovely casa in a great location. Within walking distance of everything in Santiago de Cuba. In a safe neighborhood. We were able to make our reservation directly by email in advance and confirm by telephone 2 says before. They arranged for our pickup at the airport and a taxi to take us back. We had a very nice & clean room with a private bath. AC was very loud but we really didn't need it. Small fridge in room was handy for having cold drinks. Martin & Gisel were very honest, fair & accommodating hosts. We were able to communicate well in English with both of them. Great meals. We had breakfast on the rooftop terrace (the oasis) every morning. We had dinner there 3 of the 5 nights we stayed. Good portions & prices. Very flexible. We could choose what we ate and where. They helped us make arrangements for an excursion to Gran Piedra and the nearby UNESCO coffee plantation. We had our own key to the house which gave us the independence to come & go as we pleased. We had a wonderful time in Santiago de Cuba and staying a Hostel Martin y Gisel was a big part of it. If we ever travel back to Santiago de Cuba, we will certainly stay here again.
